UPDATED AUGUST, 2021-PLEASE BE AWARE OF OUR COVID SAFETY PLAN.
WINTERVILLE BAPTIST CHURCH PLAN OF ACTION
These are subject to continual revisions as the situation dictates
In response to the COVID-19 pandemic and in accordance with the safety guidelines set by the CDC, the State of N.C., and the Southern Baptist Convention, we enter into the following plans to return to our regular worship services, fellowship times, and small groups. May we continue prayerfully through these coming months, depending upon God’s provision and protection, and seeking to utilize the wisdom that God has given His people for the safety of all.
IF ANYONE IS UNCOMFORTABLE RETURNING TO INDOOR SERVICES, UNDER THESE PROTOCOLS, WE WILL ENCOURAGE THEM TO TAKE ADVANTAGE OF THE OTHER OPTIONS AVAILABLE TO PARTICIPATE IN THE WORSHIP SERVICES (ONLINE, RADIO/PARKING LOT, CDs).
As we begin to return to indoor Sunday services on November 1, 2020 I have outlined the precautions which I feel are necessary at this time:
A. SINGING: Congregational singing has been re-instated as part of our worship services as of June, 2021.
9 A.M. Small groups meet (Sunday School)
10:15 A.M. Worship service (Sundays)
6:30 PM Prayer/Bible Study (Wednesdays)
C. HAND WASHING: Please continue to utilize the hand sanitizing stations throughout the church building.
D. FACE MASKS: Face masks continue to be optional at this point for those who have been vaccinated. For those who have not been vaccinated face masks continue to be recommended.
E. FELLOWSHIP HALL: Our Sunday 10:15AM services are livestreamed in the fellowship hall for those who prefer to attend in a smaller group and spread out a little more.
Those who do not feel comfortable entering the building may park in the parking lot, tune to FM 89.9, and experience the service that way. We will continue to live stream Sunday morning services on the church website and on the facebook page. CDs are available upon request for anyone who would like an audio recording of the service.
The best protection you have against COVID-19 is prayer and faith in God but also to get vaccinated to protect yourself and others.
